If the PM's roadmap goes to plan, a raft of new freedoms will come into place on June 21.

Nightclubs will reopen and weddings will be back on, with eager Brits hailing it Independence Day.

One person wrote on Twitter: "June 21st should be a bank holiday if you ask me."

Another tweeted: "@BorisJohnson what do you think about declaring the 21st of June, a NATIONAL Bank Holiday? I think it makes perfect sense."

And a third posted: "They may as well make the 21st June a bank holiday 'cause no ones going work are they?"

Meanwhile, memes have flooded the internet in all the excitement, with one person writing: "My birthday is on June 22nd. Party at my house … everyone is invited!"

Another shared a picture of a guy with all their clothes neatly laid out beside them. "Me the night before pubs and bars reopen," they wrote.

Someone else compared themselves to Gemma Collins, vowing to go out every night after June 21.

Others breathed a sigh of relief as the date in June gives them plenty of time to prepare their summer body.

The Government's blueprint will see pub gardens, hairdressers, gyms and shops open on April 12.

Families and friends will then be able to stay at each other's houses – or in a hotel together – from May 17.

Diners will also be allowed inside restaurants and drinkers into pubs if things remains on track.

Big events like concerts and sporting events could also go ahead with limits on the number of people allowed to attend, and gyms will reopen too.

And after more than a year since the start of a pandemic, all restrictions will be lifted on June 21.

It means nightclubs, which have stayed shut throughout the pandemic, can reopen and weddings will have no cap on numbers.

Offering a glimmer of hope last night, Boris vowed: "There is light ahead, leading us to a spring and the summer, which I think will be seasons of hope, looking and feeling incomparably better for us all and from which we will not go back."
